Aimed at reluctant readers, these biographies are no more than illustrated encyclopedia articles. Each one relates the most basic and pertinent facts about a well-known historical figure in an appealing and popular format. Students looking for an easy way to complete assignments will only get the broad strokes of these people's lives. The artists use jaunty colors and the panels are easy to follow for children new to comics. Yet the books are neither stellar in artwork nor rich with information. Even so, teachers and librarians looking to introduce their reluctant or struggling readers to prominent figures in history might want to have these titles available.
